Showa® GREEN-DEX™ Biodegradable Nitrile GlovesIt seems virtually every business in this country incorporates a type of disposable glove in its operation and if you ever had to wear disposable gloves for a paycheck, then you have a pretty good idea at just how many gloves are consumed then tossed into the garbage across this country. When you consider how many people wear and dispose single-use gloves in hospitals, offices, schools, warehouses, labs, food service and food processing establishments every day in this country, the numbers are outrageous.

For most businesses, workers simply toss these gloves into the garbage where they make their way to landfills and studies have shown, it can take 100+ years to decompose. Over the years in business, we've heard many customers say they feel guilty throwing items such as garbage bags, disposable diapers and especially disposable gloves into the trash and wished there was a reasonably priced biodegrable option availble for consumers.

Well folks, we have a competitively priced biodegradable glove option for you! And just in case you are skeptical, these abilities have been validated by independent certified laboratories using SSTM international test methods (ASTM D5526 & ASTM D5511) which has confirmed that 20% of a GREEN-DEX™ and N-DEX™ single-use ntirile gloves will have biodegraded in 160 days with full biodegradtion within 1-5 years!
